Root Canal Treatment in Bonita Springs, Florida

What is a Root Canal?

Root canal treatment is a procedure performed to save a badly decayed or damaged tooth. When a tooth decays and the pulp is damaged, the bacteria multiply and spread, and can lead to an infection. This is the reason why it is vital for the infected pulp to be taken out. This is also a way to save the tooth without having to extract it.

Signs of a Root Canal Infection

  • A severe toothache, especially when there is pressure on the tooth or while chewing
  • A persistent pimple on the gums
  • Darkening or discoloration of the tooth
  • Prolonged sensitivity to cold and hot temperatures
  • Tender and swollen gums

During the treatment, the damaged pulp, and the nerve are removed from the inside of the decayed tooth so that the cavity can be cleaned. After cleaning the cavity, we will fill it in and seal it, restoring the tooth's appearance and function.

Many patients put off getting a root canal done due to the fear of pain. But the fact is that the treatment itself is much less painful than the pain caused by a decayed tooth. Local anesthesia will be administered before the procedure to make you as comfortable as possible. We also offer oral sedation to make your experience as relaxing as possible.
